Episode 80: I Un-bark!
English Phonemes: “ohd-[sz][cz]eh-KOO-yeh”
Literal Translation: I un-bark.
Elegant Translation: I take my bark back.
English Equivalent: My bad. Forget what I said.
You can use this casual turn of phrase when you say something you then want to take back, when you apologize for a remark, or when you change your mind about something you said. Or even when you retract an article in print.
If you pronounce the ending ę or e, either way is okay. Like “I geddit” vs. “I get it”. Both work. I will teach you the ‘e’ ending, as it’s more common.
